Default 5 finger fingerpicking?

When my lessons advanced to a certain point of getting into heavier classical stuff, my teacher started getting me into using my pinky for certain pieces.
For instance, I couldn't imagine playing Mertz' Nocturne without using it.

At first it surprised me what a floppy useless digit it felt like, but after awhile I developed a fair amount of strength and control with it.
